TTD can use parachutes for breaks???

I guess I never knew this, but they can use parachutes as a backup breaking system on TTD? I found this pic on PointBuzz today:

Not to mention that the chance of a magnetic breaking system completely failing is near to impossible.

Oh yeah, and you spelled "brakes" wrong in the title too. :)

That would be cool if some one can Photoshop a pair of braking parachutes on the back of on of the TTD trains in the brake run!!! ;););)

Um, correct me if I'm wrong but didn't Superman's brakes fail at one point?

Certain victory.

The brakes didn't fail, technically. The mechanismns that move the brakes into place failed.
Cedar Point allows ride ops to wear parachute pants on their breaks? Is that what's being said here? ;)

^LMAO. I hope not. Those were hideous even in the 80's. ;)

I can one up you on the parachute pants, Tina. Mine I custom added some red fringe all the way down the legs Rick James style! What was I thinking? ;)
